Nutritional Services & Counseling

Jameson Hospital offers patients Menu Plus where daily meal orders are taken electronically using a PDA at the bedside. A Menu Hostess visits each patient daily to obtain their food orders for breakfast, lunch and dinner. A disposable, Tri Fold Pamphlet containing the daily menu selections as well as alternative items is available for each patient. The Menu Hostess gives patients a pamphlet upon admission. The patient will have time to review the pamphlet and refer to it when the Menu Hostess is taking their order.

Additional Nutritional Services for Patients

Additional snacks and nourishments are available by request. Evening nourishments are served to our patients to provide a comforting, healthy treat.

Registered Dietician Counseling

Dietitians offer inpatient and outpatient medical nutrition therapy featuring individualized nutritional counseling. Counseling is based on an analysis of each participant’s medical history, eating habits and lifestyle. A registered dietitian designs each plan to meet any special health needs and participants are counseled on how to fit their meal plan into normal daily living. Patients must obtain a written prescription from their physician with their diagnosis or nutrition concern.

Restricted Diets

Due to medical condition or testing that is scheduled to take place, you may be placed on a restricted diet or fasting as ordered by your physician. Restricted diets can include but are not limited to low sugar, low sodium, no wheat, gluten free, low fat and so on. We work hard to prepare restricted diet meals with creative additions to inspire flavor and textures.
